Last February, Jenette and Adam Johnson of Uniontown were the first of many to contact KDKA-TV about skyrocketing electricity rates.
Jenny Foriska of Elizabeth is typical of many consumers on variable rate plans under Pennsylvania’s choice plan.
After KDKA-TV first broke the story of skyrocketing electricity rates, suppliers have been on the hot seat.
Last Monday, KDKA told you about the Johnsons whose electricity supplier without notice tripled their electric bill to $739.
In response to a KDKA-TV report last Monday and complaints filed by nearly 800 ratepayers, the Public Utility Commission voted unanimously on Thursday to open an investigation of the doubling, tripling and quadrupling of rates by certain electricity suppliers.
When Jenette Johnson opened her electric bill, she was shocked.
